In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Budget & Tax News managing editor Jesse Hathaway speaks with Reason Foundation director of criminal justice reform Lauren Galik. Galik and Hathaway talk about criminal justice reform and the growing “ban the box” campaign.
The “ban the box” campaign removes barriers to gainful employment placed in the way of people seeking to rejoin society after paying their debt to society and serving time in prison. Galik explains how current employment laws often force ex-criminals back into criminal behavior, because they are not given an opportunity to explain the circumstances of their mistakes.
